Koulibaly has been a subject of United’s interest for quite some time. The Red Devils had their eyes on the Senegalese defender during Jose Mourinho’s era. The club have once again been linked heading into the upcoming window.

In fact, the Red Devils have submitted a £71m offer in order to secure the defender’s signing, who is also wanted by Liverpool.

Frank Leboeuf, though, has urged the Napoli ace to snub Manchester United, if he wants to win trophies. (h/t ESPN FC)

“I would never ask him to go to Manchester United for many reasons. Because I want him to win some stuff. And I think Manchester United is not the club that they used to be and are not ready to win stuff.

The former Chelsea star then went on to claim that Liverpool would be a good fit for Koulibaly.

“I think Liverpool would be a good fit with [Virgil] van Dijk, that would be fantastic.” (h/t ESPN FC)

Koulibaly has proven himself as a top defender in the Serie A. And while his signing would have been a good move, we boast one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League – Harry Maguire.

In addition, the improvement shown by Victor Lindelof and Eric Bailly’s return to fitness means there is a lot of quality in the centre-back department.

With Axel Tuanzebe also waiting in the wings, a new centre-back shouldn’t be a pressing concern right now for the club.
